Kathleen (Kathy) Osen joined the College of Engineering (COE) Dean’s office in January 2006 as the new Assistant to the Dean for Administration. Although new to the COE, Kathy has been an employee of Montana State University for more than 20 years and was an MSU student prior to starting her career.

Kathy filled key administrative roles in MSU's College of Nursing for more than 17 years, including nearly nine years as Assistant to the Dean. Upon leaving the College of Nursing, Kathy applied her skills to university operations as Director of the MSU Mail Services Department for three years beginning in November 2002. The Dean's office benefits from her deep understanding of fiscal, personnel, and project management within the scope of college and university services operations.
